While their lineup now seems to have changed to a great extent, I'm sure this will prove to be an interesting night.

About Samling

"Samling is a four-piece band that binds together Norwegian and Scottish Gaelic vocal music traditions, using exciting arrangements and dramatic instrumentals. The band is part of a new movement within the European roots scene becoming known as Nu-Nordic. We take on the two traditions and weave them together into a rich tapestry of harmony and rhythm with unexpected twists.

Fronted by vocal duo Anne Sofie Linge Valdal (Fribo, Jim Sutherland, Andi Neate) and Naomi Harvey (Lurach), the songs are combined with guitar, five-string fiddle, whistle and flute to create musical landscapes unlike anything you have heard before.

The songs are intertwined with instrumental arrangements from Tom Oakes (The Auvo Quartet) on guitar and samples, and Jon Bews (eks-Malinky, Cantrip) on fiddle, combined with whistle from Naomi and the unusual and captivating sound of Anne Sofie's Norwegian willow flute. "

"magical and masterfull...unique and captivating"

Who's the unnamed guitarist?

(If it's who I think it might be, no thanks, however good the other performers are).

:-)

As I said, the line up has changed quite dramatically..for good or ill..... and at the time their guitarist was Barry 'SPAD' Reid.

I'm not sure if that who was on the actual recording but I'm assuming so.

There's no mention of another guitarist in the lineup apart from TOM OAKES who I'm sure isn't the one to which you are referring.
